4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I loved this stuff. Had a strong maltiness, with a good balanced aftertaste. I probably poured this a bit too cold, as it got better as it warmed up. I’d recommend cellat temperatures at most for this one. Also, this reminded me a lot of some Samuel Smith’s brews, but being $1.30 cheaper, I’d much rather go for this. A must try.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a perfect maibock in my ever so humble opinion. Very malty, smooth, and while it’s straw color seems innocent, this stuff packs a bit of a punch. A great beer. I think this is a good gateway beer, one to get drinkers of Budmilloors into ’better’ beer.

Got it for $0.99 for the big ol’ bottle. Bang for a buck.
